This is my "encyclopedia" of both existing and fan-made Shrek characters, which features the characters I have planned to be featured in my stories (which will come to a close once I do everyone I wish to write about). It will progress from the major cast to the minor additions that are either hardly realized or made up. The list should come in handy for those who wish to follow my writings on a regular basis.
(NOTE: Some characters will either have brief descriptions, or one sentence. I apologize for any inconsistecies.)
